About the Blogger


I am Emma. Wife. Sister. Daughter. Aunt. Friend. Teacher. Caseworker. Writer. Dancer. Singer. Maid. Chef. Listener. Talker. —and so much more.

I am an avid and addicted reader and writer.  I was born and raised in the capital of Rock, Blues, B.B. King, and BBQ — Memphis, TN. I currently live in Texas with my husband, a 9th grader, 2 dogs, 1 cat, and a fish.

I loved my college days with every ounce of my being and spent my 4 years earning a BA in Psychology and Writing from the University of Central Arkansas (UCA, Go Bears!)

I am currently in the middle of a MA in Community Counseling from A&M Commerce. (Though that is on hold at this time.)

I have been having adventures ever since 2005, working in kids athletic camps, pizza joints, gymnastic academies, treatment facilities, residential homes, and public schools. My next adventure has me moving to Chattanooga, TN to oversee a residentially based leadership/mentoring experience near The University of Tennessee, Chattanooga (UTC).

We moved to Texas so that my best friend (and accomplice) could get his Doctorate at the University of Texas A&M (Whoop!)

[You can visit his super smart educator website, here. ]

And while we have been here I have been teaching English as a Second Language (ESL) for 6th, 7th, & 8th grade. I also coached Jr. High girls: Track, Volleyball, and Basketball for a year.

Next stop–destiny!
